Habib Sulemani — 17 months in solitary confinement

The Terrorland Report

HABIB R. Sulemani, a Pakistani writer/journalist in solitary
confinement for 17 months, in this exclusive photo http://nblo.gs/mg9O9
, taken yesterday in Rawalpindi, looks outside his cell-like room.

"The two generations of chirping birds in the neighborhood are my best
friends," Mr. Sulemani told a member of The Terrorland Team.

"They sing me sweet songs and I recite them my spontaneously written
poems. We often appreciate each other, but when I write something
against the military establishment, then the crows often agitate!"

Unfortunately, he has stopped writing blogs for The Terrorland without
giving any reason.

This has left the Team shattered, and for over a week, he is being
persuaded to write about his suffering as the whole world is silently
monitoring this worst kind of tyranny and oppression against a writer
in the modern age.

Mr. Sulemani along his family members is under great pressure from the
Pakistani military establishment especially the secret agencies, ISI
and MI, which has isolated him in the militarized and Talibanized
country.

Despite appeals for provision of protection and justice, the fragile
civilian government is still silent due to pressure from the powerful
accused.

If you are not aware of the tragedy, then, please, read the related
posts and Mr. Suleamani's poems on The Terrorland group blogs'
sidebar. Thanks.

And then he woke up, realizing it was only another wet dream.

Your idea of a good time is a six pack of Bud and a goat in nylons.

I have previously seen that quote from Kissinger.  Amazing that
he could speak that much Truth, right out loud, and still be regarded
as a stateman in country that thrives on falsehood.
Reminds of Alan Greenspan publicly, guilelessly admitting
right out loud that the Iraq war was mostly about oil.
Of course, no good deed goes unpunished, and he had to backpedal,
but that truth was already clear enough to anyone who wanted the truth,
which is only a tiny minority engulfed by larger throngs of flag-waving,
blowhard, bully-boy, tragically doomed Americans.
General Petreaus's America has a wonderful penchant for picking
fights with vastly weaker, 3rd-rate Banana Republics and then
losing them.
Not to worry, though.  There is a silver lining in the mushroom cloud.
Losing a war made a better country of Japan.
Lostng a war made a better, more decent country out of Germany.
Losing a REAL war will make a better, more decent, more honest country
out of the United States.
This is not a wish of malice so much as it is a recipe for improvement.
I wish the country humiliating defeat, someday; I wish it well.

Wow, thanks for this post, Tom.
